As far as I understand, women release egg cells on a relatively consistent schedule, and there are times when no egg cells are present in the uterus/fallopian tubes.
Why don't women release eggs more frequently than the 28 day-ish period? Why not once every day, for example? I understand that the uterus itself is not always susceptible to embryos, but it doesn't seem like a real detriment if the embryo is simply lost if the uterus is not ready at the right time.
Is it because human beings are unable to produce eggs as numerously as other animals, perhaps?
Edit: I don't see why this question is "opinion-based", if no clear explanation exists for the relative infrequency of oogenesis, please say so.
